? >> extraordinarily well, andrea. good afternoon. as a matter of fact, this issue is of vital importance to literally millions of people in the united states. we have to remember that for the past four years there have been a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and oth

of obama policy i take the issue with. the lack of transparency. the civilians we kill human soldiers also. sometimes accidentally or not. kill civilians, as well. humans can do what robots are doing. it gets american soldiers out of the way but having robots kill civilians and sometimes then reclassifying them as enemy combatants that makes me very uncomfortable. i mean, the drones are ultimately imprecise and not necessarily because the technology but the intelligence. right? a drone could say, kill this table and just blow up the table and not blow up that camera. but how do we know exactly who's going to be sitting at the table and steve didn't call out sick today and capehart is there and we didn't get steve. >> thank god for that. >> you know? but i mean what ultimately makes me uncomfortable is robotic warfare really easy decision to make. there should be a challenge for human beings to say let's go to war because there's blood going to be on people's hands. werner vous about it. i think the legal case and international issue is really sort of easy to sort of bre
